Roy MooreRelated image regularly hung out at an Alabama shopping mall, flirting with teenaged girls and much younger women, local residents said.

The embattled US Senate candidate – accused, on the record, by five women of making creepy moves on them when they were teens and he was in his 30s – was a regular at the Gadsden Mall where he enjoyed chatting up young ladies, witnesses told AL.com.

“He would go and flirt with all the young girls,” said nurse Blake Usry, who grew up in the area and lives in Gadsden. “Nobody could believe they hadn’t come out yet.”

Woman Unseats GOP Lawmaker Who Made Sexist Joke About Women’s March


sacratomatovillepost-wms13.jpg.jpg

On Tuesday, life came at John Carman fast.

By: Inae Oh/Mother Jones

Nearly 10 months after the New Jersey Republican legislator shared a meme asking if the historic Women’s March would be “over in time” for its participants to “cook dinner,” a woman and first-time political candidate who expressed anger over the sexist remarks has ousted Carman from office.

Democrat Ashley Bennett will now take Carman’s seat on the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders, a nine-member governing body that oversees politics in the South Jersey county. She was one of thousands of women around the country to dive into politics after Trump’s victory last year

“I was angry about [the Facebook meme], because elected officials shouldn’t be on social media mocking and belittling people who are expressing their concerns about their community and the nation,” Bennett  said in October.

Last month, Carman drew fresh outrage for sporting a Confederate flag patch in the shape of New Jersey on his denim vest. He denied the racist implications of the patch, calling it the “South Jersey Rebal Patch”

_______________________

Here’s Carman’s Facebook post reacting to Tuesday’s loss:

I just want to thank everyone who supported me and worked diligently for this election. My thanks goes out to everyone, I am truly humbled by your support. Apparently the good Lord has other plans for me, so I will continue to seek and serve in another direction. May God bless you, John

he wasn’t a terrorist because he was an American…dah!


This was one of the answers on social media to why Stephen Paddock isn’t a terrorist.  After killing 59 people and injuring nearly 600 others in Las Vegas.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov is a terrorist after killing 8 people and injuring 15 others in New York.  For many his crime is more heinous because he is foreign and from one of those countries  AND he gets 10 bonus points if he says he is a member of Isis. 

The Don said, extreme vetting (gun control) wouldn’t have mattered in Texas because the shooting ” was a result of mental health”.  Perhaps the Don could benefit from some mental health treatment. BECAUSE many states do not have a provision that prevents someone with  mental issues from buying a GUN!

What is it?

Is it easier to accept an acts of terror if the terror is perpetrated by a non European?

Terrorist acts at abortion clinics were justified because the terrorist did what he did because of his religions passion.   He was saving babies when he killed those five people.  

45 wants to limit people coming into this country from CERTAIN countries.  A gentleman on a cable news show defended 45’s position.   The fact that his was RADICALIZED in America, was ignored.   When asked, should we vet people who’s profile fits the Las Vegas shooter ( Terrorist) he said that wouldn’t work here.

If someone killed someone you knew, your not likely to say he/she was emotional, passionate, or out of control!

Image result for stupidity is real it will always be with us

Never! 

People get into lengthy passionate and sometimes hate fill speech .  I’ve never understood it.  These are strangers people I’m not likely to meet. I’m not going to change an opinion or belief.   So I’m arguing Y? 

Duh!

 

In a perfect world.  The overwhelming majority of NRA members who support gun control and the elimination of Automatic Machine Guns would withhold their dues until NRA changes their position.

Las Vegas: The United States of Hypocrisy


171004-steven-paddock-financials-portrait

 

Monday morning most Americans woke up to news of the horror in Las Vegas.  One man with an automatic rifle killing nearly 60 people and wounding hundreds more.

Oh, God! Dont let him be……..

For millions of Americans, there was a sigh of relief for Mexicans, Muslims and other black\brown skinned Americans. The killer was white and possibly christian.

This weekend, were not likely to see an increase of attacks on Mosque’s in America.  Not likely to see an increase of harassment of brown, black people and there wont be random attacks on Caucasians because of the actions Stephen Paddock a 64 year old white man living in a senior community in Nevada.

 

American Made Terror

The attack in Las Vegas was beyond horrific   It will be years or decades for the families of the victims of this attack to recover.  The attack has forever altered the lives of the people attending that concert, and for the rest of us altered our sense of safety at a concert.  As the attack at the theater in Aurora, Colorado has changed mine.

Many Americans believe Muslin’s are a danger to America, believe that Black Americans are inherently criminals  dangerous and must be handled differently by the police then White Americans and was recently told by Our President, that some Mexicans are prone to do bad things. Who are the some?

I love my country ,it is deeply flawed.  In principle, we should be treated the same.  Implausible as it seems too many, there were a few blacks, Mexicans and Muslims at that concert who like country music.   Americans

Lets create a war with Korea. Perhaps this will slow the Russian Investigation

Far fetched? 

Based on everything that has happened (so far) with the Trump administration is this the idea far fetched?

Yesterday,  North Korea Minister Ri Youg Ho accused Donald Trump of declaring war with his country after tweeting ” North Korea wont be around much longer”

“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make all self-defensive counter measures, including the right to shoot down the United States strategic bombers at any time even when they are not yet inside the aerospace border of our country,” Ri said.
Earlier today, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said North Korea appears to have boosted defenses on its east coast.
Meanwhile, as White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was playing defense saying the US had not declared war.  President Trump was tweeting up a storm about the NFL, criticizing Puerto Rico and John McCain.
As the Russian Investigation continues we learn the White House is resisting Mueller’s request for documents  including documents and emails relating to the dismissals of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Comey, as well as Trump’s Oval Office meeting with senior Russian officials in which he said Comey’s firing eased pressure on the White House.
We’ve learned at least six of Trumps closest advisers occasionally used private email addresses to discuss White House matters.

Jared Kushner, Stephen Bannon, Reince Priebus, Gary D Cohn, Stephen Miller and daughter Ivanka Trump.

Officials are supposed to use government emails for their official duties so their conversations are available to the public and those conducting oversight. But it is not illegal for White House officials to use private email accounts as long as they forward work-related messages to their work accounts so they can be preserved.

Teetering at the edge ( activist overload )

I’m a baby boomer from the San Francisco Bay Area.  I’ve been involved in politics since I was fifteen years old.   I was fascinated by the students who attended UC Berkeley.  At 15, 16, the students treated me like an equal. Their passion was contagious. I participated in protests throughout the Bay Area.    I became that person who believed if you want change you have to get involved.   One can get a addicted,  Your in one group with a cause you feel passionately about and  someone from that group invites you to a meeting then another meeting and before you know it, your life is a series of meetings.

Its  7am Tuesday morning and I’m leaving work.  On the way home, I thought I stop by 16th Street Donuts and get my final Cinnamon Roll and maybe a final Chocolate raised because this week, unlike last week and the week before, I’m gonna buckle down and leave this white sugar shit alone!

As I drive into the parking lot, my cell rings.  I haven’t really wanted to talk to anyone but this is dear friend who has always has a funny story and right now I need loads and loads of  laughter.   As we are talking my phone is ringing,  calls from Colorado, Virginia, and Texas.  I look down and say no, not today.   I have a meeting in Stockton at 11 that I’m dreading.    An hour has passed,  I’m still in my car in front of the donut shop chatting. My friend is in good form,  I love his tales from the plant.  But it time to go….They are going to sell my Cinnamon Rolls and all the donuts are growing stale by the second and I need to go home and  change into something comfortable before the drive to Stockton.

Something’s wrong,  has been wrong for days maybe weeks.   I’m feeling anxious and close to depression accompanied by a dull pain in my stomach.     World War 3 with Korea is looming ,Putin was weighting in on the conflict asking for diplomacy.   This is serious!  I’m a world class talker, but I haven’t really wanted to talk to anyone,  and I’m isolating myself ,which is a clear sign of depression.

Most people would look for a quiet place to decompress or maybe a lively place.   I went on social media and found a obscure meeting in a rural area north of Sacramento. The community is poor and is concerned about the Affordable Care Act .  They feel they’re aren’t being heard by their elected representative.  This was in my wheelhouse, however like most meetings, this meeting deteriorated into we hate Trump.  After 30 minutes I took my leave.

Its the holiday weekend and I was looking forward to working my late night shift. Holidays and the week that follows are typically slow.  During the quiet moments I read the news or I blog.   I’m a news junkie.  I read everything.  Its important  to hear all points of view.  In some circles just the mention of Fox News or MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow will place you in the center of a storm.  People who have never seen either show attempt to place you in the L or C box.   I find this frustrating and unproductive as I listen to one group villianizing another and I’m often attacked at meetings trying to  present the other side.

Another source of my frustration is the fragmentation.  In the 60’s it was civil rights, which  includes rights for women as well as people of color.   When women marched in the 70’s in many parts of the country it included gay rights.   There are currently so many groups, marching for so many things I think its confusing for the public.  Many of these groups are not supporting each other and some of the reasons are petty.  You didn’t attend or confirm our event so we wont support yours.    Missing in this country is a single issue.  ACA united us, someone, somewhere knows someone, who is depended on the ACA.   No leader emerged, the Democratic’s party sang songs to the Republicans after the GOP voted to dismantle the ACA. .

There are some Democrats and Republicans who believe members of the other party are inherently evil. Who’s goal is to take away freedoms.  I’m of the mind unless we work together solutions will be difficult.

On route to the meeting in Stockton. I’m listening to Sirrus radio trying to avoid the news.  Switching channels I heard the news of  Trumps intention to end (DACA) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.  Within minutes I received texts asking all to protest in Tuscon and Los Angeles.  Truth is I know little about DACA, its just one more thing. In a series of THINGS!  My stomach is upset and my chest is hurting.  I just want to sit in my car with the AC on.  Its just too much, but I have a committeemen.

At the meeting, I’m not feeling anything, not hearing anything.  Someone grabbed  my shoulder and asks if I was alright?    Apparently, I’m crying and not aware of it.  I touch my face and its wet.  Suddenly, I noticed other people looking at me, some with tears in their eyes, FUCK!

I get up with the intention of regrouping in the bathroom.   But  I walk instead, to the parking lot to my car.  I realize I left my notes on the chair, it doesn’t matter.   I’m going home.  I get in my car,  I meant to turn right onto on Pacific to get to March Lane, but I turned left on Pacific by the Mall.   I started crying, and pulled into the parking lot.

I drove home and started crying again, now feeling sorry for myself.  Am I having a breakdown?   I lay on the sofa and drift off to sleep. When I woke up I went on social media.

To my friends, comrades I will not be attending any meetings for the next few days . Needing a few days of ME time . Sent emails out this morning. Perhaps a couple of days in the mountains.. I need BIG injections of humor #thenanny#Ilovelucy In a few days I’ll be ready for the next round. #DACA#Northwestend #resistence #projectkings next week. Keep marching. Sending Love

Crying brought clarity.  I’m overwhelmed, I’m associated with 11 groups, which is beyond crazy!   I’m frustrated and most of all I’m sad.   I’m usually comforting people at meetings at work, who are overwhelmed by the daily news.  I didn’t realize the events had taken a toll on me.    This has been a contentious eight months.    I decided to leave all the organizations to reset.    I thought about writing letters, but I’m a volunteer.   I have to find THAT single issue where I can be helpful.

As I told a friend, I’m not gone, I’m simply taking a break!

Activist never die, they’re simply waiting for the appropriate cause.

For now its about humor. After tonight’s viewing of Steven Kings “IT”

If you see a large black man screaming like Jamie Lee Curtis. well…..

Just one thing….  If your wearing a clown suite,  Don’t just Don’t  We don’t need to be the lead story on Fox 40 News

See you at the next protest

Sweden Opinion: The fakers’ little lies are eating our brains


Opinion: The fakers' little lies are eating our brains

Information is one of the biggest weapons in modern warfare, and as fake news sites lose their power, real news organizations risk being hijacked by the spread of little lies. Journalists and audiences need to fight back.

The warning in a Cold War Swedish pamphlet is stark: “Be on your guard against fake radio broadcasts. Remember that even well known voices on the air can be imitated. Listen critically!” But today, at another moment of great international instability, it’s a message that risks being lost on both journalists and the public.

As I woke up on the last day of my holiday, I started getting messages from journalists at Al Jazeera and the BBC, asking me to confirm a report on The Local. According to them, we’d run an interview with FIFA boss Gianni Infantino, who had said Saudi Arabia and six other Middle Eastern countries were demanding Qatar be stripped of the World Cup.

The story was piffle. And despite appearances, it was not on The Local. Someone had cloned The Local, using a similar web address, and had published the story. Reuters and other international media had picked it up and re-reported it, citing The Local. The story didn’t sound outlandish and its apparent appearance in mainstream media gave it credibility.

We still don’t know who did it, though in a possibly related incident the Washington Post later reported that US officials were accusing the United Arab Emirates of a previous hack of Qatari media. In that incident, the hackers planted false quotes from the Emir of Qatar about Israel and Iran, causing a major crisis in the region. It’s maybe not a wild guess to say that the story (not) on The Local was intended to pour oil on the flames.

Fake news is nothing new. In the mid-eighties, the Soviet Union went to huge lengths to fabricate a story accusing the CIA of inventing the AIDS virus as a way of attacking Africa and its own black population. It was a sophisticated operation: fake research was produced by real East German scientists and the results spread via Soviet propaganda units to newspapers in countries such as India and Ghana. Gradually, the stories seeped into the mainstream.

The results were frighteningly long-lasting: in 2005, 16 percent of African Americans believed AIDS was created by the government to control the black population.

British journalist Peter Pomerantsev says we are seeing the ‘weaponization of information’, where countries or political groups use disinformation to harm each other. The recent epidemic of fake news has mostly been spread by hyper-partisan outlets or state propaganda sites, like Breitbart or RT (Russia Today).

But broad swathes of the public have already learned to distrust sites like these, and Facebook and Google have been embarrassed into taking steps to curb them. Now, genuine news sites are the new front in the information war.

The AIDS story is memorable because it was so outrageous and well-planned. But the really insidious fake stories are often also mundane and far less elaborate. A fake story from Milos Yiannopoulos that Sweden was banning Christmas lights on public roads fed into the myth that immigration was robbing Sweden of its culture. Mainstream British newspapers for years repeated the lie that the EU had banned bendy bananas – an idiotic myth, but one that fed the deepest prejudices of many voters. Even the President of the United States repeats half-remembered myths and distortions he heard on Fox News. The individual power of these stories is less important than the drip, drip effect a succession of similar fake stories has on how we perceive the world.

Fake news writers, whoever they work for, know that clicks are driven by stuff that confirms people’s deepest prejudices. If a story casts suspicion on minorities, slams the elites or spreads conspiracy theories about rival countries, we’re almost pre-programmed to believe it.

Fake news – propaganda – manipulates us to act against our own interests. It makes us think good politicians are crooked, out-of-touch or incompetent and encourages us to elect genuinely bad ones. It makes us think other countries threaten our way of life, and this causes political or even military conflict. We should all be scared about what the lies are doing to our politics, our societies and our brains: a collection of little lies lodged in our subconsciouses can do far more damage than the big, bold, disprovable lies.

When countries or political groups with huge resources decide to use real media to fight their wars, we are all incredibly vulnerable. Serious journalists need to check their sources more rigorously – if our readers can’t trust us, we lose our reason to exist. But journalists are fallible and easily imitated. The last line of defence is still what it was in Cold War Sweden: the scepticism of the crowd.
